Warning on designer ‘bath salts’

A new and dangerous family of illegal designer drugs called “bath salts” has begun to show up in the south suburbs, police say.

Police departments including Abington, Hingham, Quincy, and Weymouth have all made arrests for possession of bath salts in the past year. And a man in Abington was arrested and charged with manufacturing drugs including bath salts in 2011. Officials say they expect to continue making arrests as more of the synthetic drugs move into the area.
